Exhibition of work by two of Italy's most acclaimed artists on view at ArtMoorHouse
Percorsi Liquidi, 2013. 80 x 80 cm.

LONDON.- ArtMoorHouse is presenting L’Utopia Della Pittura, an exhibition of work by two of Italy’s most acclaimed artists, both from Padua, positioning the highly revered and well-established Renato Pengo alongside promising young painter Alessandro Pizzo. The exhibition runs 10 November – 10 December 2014.

Despite their diversity of expression, for this show the artists have nurtured a unique synergy and understanding around the content and needs of art in our times, crowded with a wide array of languages aimed exclusively at dramatization. Simultaneously, both artists, diverse in age and technical training, reveal in their work a fundamental leap of vision, which involves feeling, knowing and communicating.

This understanding has developed over the past three to four years through continuous dialogue – the works presented in this exhibition are the result of this discourse.

Born from an artistic preoccupation that has been a major concern for Renato Pengo for several decades, L’Utopia Della Pittura, ‘The Utopia of Painting’, similarly draws on and aims to unravel brief moments of psycho-sensory consciousness. In the early 1970s, Pengo’s works departed from his academic formation and the existentialistic expressiveness, reaching new ways of experimentation – rigorously cerebral serial structures leading to the almost true essence of colour.

The strenuously self-reflective character and the strictly contemporary themes of Pengo's artistic research, which is evident in this exhibition at Moor House in the works of both artists, placed him in a particular position in the Italian and European contemporary art landscape. As we see a shift in more recent years to anthropology and psychoanalysis, the discourse between Pizzo and Pengo can be seen as a development of an already essential command: the expression of a poetry that evolves in the spiritual and imaginary universe, pregnant with vibrations and cosmic energy, in a space that becomes the immaterial void.

Alessandro Pizzo began his career as an artist in 2008 and had his first solo exhibition in Padua in 2010.

Renato Pengo is an Italian artist working in the disciplines of painting, photography, video, installantion and performance. In 1975 he was among the founders of the artistic group Azionecritica, whose artistic activities, such as performances and murales, are carried out in many neighborhoods in Padua, together with the Odin Teatret of Eugenio Barba.

Following his study at the Arts Institute at Padua, Pengo was introduced by the renowned Italian poet and writer Diego Valeri to the Traghetto Gallery in Venice, where he held his first major solo show.
